Hardline Custom Compact Lan Case

Fully custom case and first time hardline water-cooled with custom integrated reservoir/distro plate.
Winner of LTT x Dreamhack Custom PC Competition
Total case volume ~ 10L


Case is fully custom, and designed by me. The objective was the smallest possible hard lined liquid cooled case. I am short on funds, but high on engineering, so I wanted to include my current hardware, including a 240mm rad, full length graphics, SFX-L PSU, and room for an 2.5"ssd AND 3.5"HDD.

This was my first time doing a fully custom case and also my first time doing any custom liquid cooling so it was an adventure in both respects!

Interesting innovations to make this compact system work:
-DANcase 'sandwich' style layout
-Front panel contains integrated custom reservoir and custom pump top
-Use radiator to cross sides of the case and Front panel res to cross back
-Single slot liquid cooled GPU hides 3.5"HDD (didn't want that on the outside layer)
-Feet to add height double as LAN/Airport carry handles
